Plan and conduct specialised lift

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



1Inspect site

1.1 Site is inspected as required with other relevant personnel to assess job requirements

1.2 All necessary parameters are measured to ensure accuracy of calculations

1.3 Hazards are identified through inspection of site and load

1.4 Additional information regarding load and possible hazards is sought from customer and expert personnel

1.5 Special site requirements are identified

2Plan the lift

2.1 Operation plan is developed in consultation with other relevant personnel to include hazard prevention/control measures in line with workplace procedures, applicable Australian standards and codes of practice

2.2 Where required, approval to carry out lift is obtained from the appropriate statutory authority

2.3 Multiple crane lifts are planned (as applicable) to encompass the determination of the types of cranes suitable for use and an assessment of the share of the load to be carried by each crane

2.4 Cranes load chart is interpreted and information on permissible loads, radii, weights, boom and jib taken into account in planning the job

2.5 Safe Working Load (SWL) or Working Load Limit (WLL) is calculated

2.6 Appropriate drawings and simulations are created to check feasibility of planned operations

2.7 Information from previous lifts is used in developing the operational plan

2.8 A range of different alternatives is considered to ensure effective and safe lift

2.9 Unsolicited, irrelevant information is disregarded to focus on the task at hand

2.10 Need for additional/specialised equipment is ascertained and arrangements made for collection/delivery to site

2.11 Communication system is determined and all team members are briefed on its use in conducting lift

3Set up lift

3.1 Site measurements are checked to verify accuracy

3.2 Operating and emergency controls are checked to ensure the crane is in safe working order

3.3 Appropriate personal protective equipment is selected and worn in accordance with manufacturers specifications and site requirements

3.4 Site is isolated as necessary and, when required, assistance sought to ensure public safety

3.5 Other personnel on site are directed as necessary to ensure risks to personnel and equipment are minimised

3.6 Variables which affect the predictability of the operation are eliminated wherever possible

4Work effectively in team

4.1 The advice of all team members is sought in developing the operational plan

4.2 Ideas are discussed and evaluated with team members to determine viability and reach consensus on an effective plan

4.3 Individual roles and responsibilities are clarified and agreed

4.4 Other team members are assisted as necessary to ensure the operation can be completed safety and efficiently

5Lift and move load

5.1 Nominated authorised person is recognised as being in control and instructions are followed

5.2 Test runs are conducted as necessary to ensure a safe lift

5.3 Load is hoisted and lowered into position using crane movements in accordance with the appropriate Australian standard

5.4 Danger is anticipated by monitoring of crane and load, and instruction to stop operation given where there are any concerns the lift is not proceeding as planned

5.5 Potential impact of change in one area of operation on the lift as a whole is recognised

5.6 In the event of unanticipated situations, contribution is made to developing alternative operational plan

6Follow up on job

6.1 Specialised equipment is checked and re-stored in accordance with workplace procedures

6.2 Operation is reviewed in consultation with relevant personnel and contribution is made to recommendations for review of procedures where appropriate

6.3 Need for further after job debriefing or counselling is recognised and appropriate action is taken

6.4 Records are completed promptly in line with workplace procedures
